My favourite page of any book is that last blank page right after the last words.
Because on that page, if you’ve completely engrosed yourself, in an instant you can see the future of each character and how their lives continue on where no words are left.
Or how their lives end, depending on the book.
What program do you use to draw your circular gallifreyan?
WHEN DID I GET THIS ASK! WHY DIDNT THE BUBBLE WITH THE NUMBER SHOW UP ON THE LITTLE ENVOLPE AHHHHHHHHHHH!
I like to use Adobe Flash CS6. Its a nice piece of software that crashes only occasionaly, if you’re gentle with it. Although it is expensive, especially if you can’t get the student discount that most secondary institutions offer. For a cheaper alternative I’ve heard of people using paint.net or regular ms paint(if you don’t mind a bit more pixelation).
The creator, Loren Sherman, is working on his own drawing program and a beta is availiable. I do not envy him because this is something I have tried and it turned me into a giant squid of anger. Currently the drawer program is not wonderful but can be used for short words(if you’re careful).
So I was working on an animation, for kicks. I don’t think I’ll finish it but here it is. I was looking at it and I think it’s too choppy. For the amount of work that was there’s no salvaging it.
However for the amount of learning it was it was worth it.
I have a couple of these things but I have no idea what they’re called. I used to stare at them really closely like I was trying to see into a little tiny globule run factory.
I need to learn how to work.
"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning. Where the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger. Somewhere there’s injustice. Somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace! We’ve got work to do…" for slightlyacidicmilkhotel
I did not expect this one to be so big. In fact tumblr will shrink it by 4x (I made it as an SVG why don’t I just shrink it myself? It wouldn’t be a big difference). But also I didn’t expect it to be so long. Not sure why I thought that, it’s kind of obvious when you read the quote.
I like splitting sentances by commas, I think I’ll keep doing it. It looks really cool.
Thought I’d dig this one back up. It could use some love. I’ll dig up a few more while I work on many things. So many things.
I feel a bit guilty.
Today I fleshed out a story for a (fictional(just for clairity)) character I’ve been working on.
I did terrible things to that character. It almost feels like I’ve hurt a family member. How do authors deal with that kind of guilt?
So I found this picture and it’s basically exactly what I want to get. My only issue is that the word “the” doesn’t look the way that the guide I found said it should look, but it looks nicer than the way it said it should. So now I’m conflicted.
I’ve got good news for you. There are two ways to spell ‘the’. The way it’s spelled in the tattoo here is the three letter version. Circular gallifreyan has a single letter for ‘th’ as well as individual characters for the letter ‘t’ and ‘h’ thus we have multiple ways of doing things.
Hopefully this is confusing enough to keep the NSA off our backs. Also that tattoo has correct spelling all around.

My first memories of colour were of blue and red. This is beautiful to watch.

I have a feeling this is going to be a long post.
